. >> reporter: mandela, as an ex-president, met with george w. bush in 2005. but there was no love lost there. mandela was one of bush's harshest critics when it came to iraq. when we talked to bush about the ailing mandela earlier this year, there were no hard feelings. >> he promoted freedom. he was a really great leader. he was smart and capable. and made his mark. >> reporter: obama only met mandela once. ever so briefly as a junior senator. but his connection may be the most profound. it was mandela, he says, who awakened him to the wider world. inspiring him to political activism. >> he gave me a sense of what human beings can do when guided by their hopes, not by their fears. >> reporter: in other words, there night not be a president obama if not for nelson mandela. for "this week." jonathan karl, abc news, washington. >>> and we're lucky now to be joined by four individuals who had unique working relationships with nelson mandela. bill keller. dr. gay mcdougall, who campaigned for his release from prison. stan greenberg, his pollster and strategist. and ambassador jendayi frazer. tha

, and germanupification, a tremendous agenda done well. i hold the fire op the george w. bush adds mrgs because history has to review that, and i'm not confident that grades will be high there. the task force was established in 1992 for a very simpt reasonment if all of you ever made a phone call to the intelligence community, there's a bunch of technical agencies, analytic agencies, and if you have a pressing need, and you want to get that intelligence community to help you, you got to know how to make it work, so that when we talk about establishing the task force, we knew the complexity of the issues that were unprecedented in most of our experience. this was going to be a tough road to hoe, so we wanted to simplify the relationship with the policy communities. if you made a telephone call, you need a service right away, call, get that nice electronic lady telling you, we will give you six options, you pick one, and six to seven buttons you push, you may or may not get help. we wanted to eliminate that and make it personal so that a person could call the task force and get a response. we does covere
rate which compelled president george w. bush to sign an extension of unemployment benefits when he was in office. i think that the news we have today reinforces that we need to address this problem and extend those unemployment insurance benefits to those individuals. because this is a persistent problem. when president bush signed the law, the average person was unemployed for i believe 17 weeks. for that portion of the unemployed, they fell in november. the number of long-term unemployed stayed pretty steady. that is more evidence we need to address this problem and it would be terrible to tell more than one million families across the country just a few days after christmas that they are out of benefits. we hope that congress will address this challenge. fax we are one week away from the deadline for lawmakers to get to a budget deal. how close -- is the white house insisting that it is extending that? >> we believe that congress should extend unemployment insurance. the vehicle that they used to do that is less important than the fact that they do it. i will not negotiate from

of president clinton's. -- of president bush's, george w. bush. and two of president clinton's. that's a total of seven in the history of united states senate. when a filibuster has said to a subcabinet member, we're going to deny you your seat because of a filibuster or a failed cloture vote. so president obama has been treated about exactly the same as his last two predecessors. and in all of those i've just mentioned, we've only found among cabinet members, district judges, among supreme court justices and subcabinet members, two obama nominees who've been denied their seats because a failed cloture vote. now, that is a fact, madam president. that is not a piece of republican propaganda. that comes from the congressional research service. so why is there a fuss about this? well, maybe it's because of the federal circuit judges. well, let's talk about that. as for appeals court judges, republican filibusters have blocked five, have blocked five. well, when did that -- when did that happen? that happened, madam president, as a result of what happened in 2003, the year i came to the senate.
't until 2008 that congress passed and president george w. bush, not his father, it wasn't until five years ago the u.s. government got around to signing legislation that he didn't need a waiver t.anc that governs south africa and has done so for two decades the designation of the anc as a terrorist group by the united states is a reminder sometimes our government, our political leaders, sometimes they get important things wrong. they get hugely important things very wrong. our country from the president to the mr. president, every day citizens right now our country is mourning the loss of mandela, remembering the life he lived the way he changed the world. our country in the western world wasn't always this united in viewing mandela as a hero. a part tied, apartness in the africano language, they were voted into office in south africa in then 48. they set about passing a series of impressive laws of racial segregation. they western considered citizens. in 1960 when drarts went to the police station in the black town of sharpville and redanded to be arrested, they were protesting the node t
book is supposed to come out in january and we reported a piece that he worked for both george w. bush and barack obama, even comparing him unfavorably in some respects the bush, which i think will be an eye-catching statement on the part of the and widely respected with national security professionals and republican who agreed to serve in his cabinet. host: wharton, virginia, democratic caller. caller: how is everyone? host: fine, thanks. caller: number one, i did not believe that the rollout of healthcare.gov did not have a lot of problems, but think it has been way overblown. in terms of concrete numbers i bet you'll see -- you know what, we have a problem, but it was not the unmitigated disaster that so many people and most republicans have described it as , the effect on the percentage of the population being less than what they might have you believe. the next thing is instead of republicans jumping up and down and talking about how you can keep your health care plan if , building up the advances of those who lost in his interview the president said he did not take over the insur
and the way supreme court addressed that issue and got the presidency for george w. bush. that's how our constitution works. al gore went out there and basically accepted that without complaint. al gore accepted the fact and then he won by 600,000 votes that w. was president. there were no legal challenges. there is an asymmetry between the hard right and the left. to say they are the same not true. >> there's an extraordinary speech by al gore that night and many observers thought if al gore had spoken that way over the campaign he probably would have won that election. >> if he had richard goodwin throughout the campaign instead of the concession speech it would have helped. >> we'll talk about the interview tonight. good luck. >> i hope i can do my job. katty, what's next? >> coming up, we'll have more here on "morning joe" with the economist which is looking into its krystal ball for the year ahead. we'll break down the magazine's predictions from music industry to president obama getting his second term back on track. stay with us for more "morning joe." we'll be right back. vo: it'

. w. bush administration, i think had very impressive achievements in its relationship with intelligence on eastern europe and the collapse of communism there on the ussr, the beginning of the implosion of the soviet union. on the middle east where invested in reviving the middle east peace process, a success. a tremendous, busy, challenging agenda which that administration did well. i will hold my fire on the george w. bush administration because i think history will have to redo that, and i'm not confident that the grades will be very high there. the balkan task force was established in 1992 for a very simple reason. if all of you who made a phone call, and by the way, you make a phone call to the intelligence community, he had a whole bunch of technical agencies, analytical agencies, if you have a pressing need and you want to get that intelligence community to help you, you need to know how to make it work. when we talk about establishing the balkan task force we knew the complexity of the issues in the balkans were virtually unprecedented or most of our experience.
. reagan then went over to the white house to visit with president george h.w. bush. on the record opposing the brady bill. according to the new york times, a national rifle association official heard of reagan's announcement, looked at the picture he kept on his desk and said, don't do this to me. but for all of that, reagan support's support by itself still wasn't enough. the bush administration came and went and still there was no brady bill. it took another election. the election of 1992, in which sarah brady, a life-long republican, the daughter of that fbi agent, she supported the democrat, bill clinton. she supported him because he supported the brady bill. and in the fall of clinton's first year in office, with clinton's party in control of the house and of the senate, it actually happened. >> in the east room of the white house today, it was not just an ordinary presidential ceremony, the end of a long road for jim and sarah brady, parents of the brady bill. >> that was a road more than 12 years long. but at last gun control supporters could smile. the brady bill was now law. >> an
